Babyshambles singer and all round tabloid fascination Pete Doherty has announced that he’s getting his intimate diaries published next year. Typically though, Doherty missed his own press event so it was announced for him.
The book will look at his rise to stardom, his addiction to drugs and his relationship with Kate Moss. The book will consist of 20 volumes and feature poetry, film reviews, drawings and photo which, according to his publisher, is “incredibly readable”.
Doherty said of the deal: “I am very happy to have a book coming out with Orion and to share a bookshelf with H G Wells, Ian Rankin and Stan Bowles. I’ve always wanted to have a book published and it’s all very exciting for me personally.”
